Sister’s call for DNA test
THE SISTER of J Lloyd Samuel has said she will seek a court order allowing her to privately test DNA after a coroner found that remains from a car crash were the former footballer’s.
The 37-year-old, who played in the Premier League, was killed when his Range Rover burst into flames after colliding with a four-tonne delivery vehicle last year, Warrington Coroner’s Court heard.
The former defender’s white car had strayed on to the wrong side of the road before the crash and was then thrown into the air by the impact, the two-day inquest was told.
Fire damage meant that his body was so badly disfigured that it could not be visibly identified.
It has been reported that the ex-footballer’s sister, Leslie-Ann Samuel, has claimed her sibling’s death was faked.
It was reported on Sunday that she believes her brother is still alive and that he was not at the wheel.
